we are planning to install 5-6 LDOMS on Sun server T5240, as the server is purchased from Sun so the OS license is free. but does creating many LDOMS require some additional license?

please revert back soon

You're planning to install the proprietary version of Solaris in the LDOMS? – Matthew Flaschen Aug 2 '10 at 15:05
Yes, Solaris 10 would be installed on each LDOM – Rajeev Aug 3 '10 at 13:39

In pre-Oracle days, there was no need for extra licensing (costs). AFAIK, this hasn't changed since the acquisition.
